Youths charged

BRADFORD – Two local youths face theft charges after $400 worth of goods were lifted from Walmart late Monday afternoon.

RMA instructor Tressa Young (above), a multiple world champion, was not at the Canadian Open martial arts tournament in Gatineau, Que., to compete but rather to support her students. Persuaded by judges, competitors and event organizers, and with only five minutes of preparation for the division to begin, the third-degree black belt entered the ring for the Elite Creative division and dominated, winning first place.
